Image for No More Ugly Bathroom Fan

While remodeling our two bathrooms, we had the ceilings texturized and decided to replace the exhaust fans. The old fans were the standard vented box type, which were not only ugly, but did a poor job.

We made a trip to Lowes and I expected to find newer models of the same old thing. I wasn't happy to spend money on another ugly, but necessary item. As it turned out, I didn't have to.

When we got to the displays, we were looking at the various models that reminded me of what we had just removed. We were checking them for power and sound and trying to pick out the least ugly, yet most powerful one for our needs.

When I don't like something, it's nearly impossible for me to pick one out and I kept going back and forth, as if they'd magically improve if I looked long enough. Imagine my surprise when I spotted something that looked more like a light fixture instead of a fan. This couldn't possibly be a bathroom fan. It was actually pretty and there was no sign of the fan part. I was certain that it was something that had been put in the wrong department.

My husband also became interested in the light, but questioned whether it was actually what we were looking for. He began searching the boxes on the shelves and suddenly, there it was! The pretty light fixture was also an exhaust fan. Once we knew that it was the right size for our bathrooms, the decision was quite easy.

The glass has a swirled marble design with a brass finial. It is recommend for use in a medium size bathroom, up to 65 square feet. It requires two 60 watt standard bulbs and has a 5 year warranty.

My husband installed both fans with no problems. They are not only attractive, but they are much quieter than the fans we had before and having the extra light is always welcome. They look like a regular light fixture, which is the best part of all. We've had these for about a year and have been extremely happy with them.
